	Since we're discussing this anyway how good is the journalling
anway on either xfs or reiserfs. I'm in the middle of building an mp3
player for my car, might do a talk on it when I'm done. Anyway I don't
want to go to the effort of hacking together some circtry to auto
shutdown when it loses 12V from the iginition etc etc. 

	So with reiser or xfs can I just switch it off and not have too
many problems. ie this means being turned off without shutdown
constantly ie say I drove my car everyday it would be turned off 365*2
times per year.

	Basically should I be able to maintain filesystem integrity. My
other option is to mount everything read only I could probably get away
with it but it's just a hassle and I'd rather not.
